  • Byrne walks away with the film by making Kelly a well-rounded, conflicted person, rather than the film's fun cop who has to tell everyone the boring truth.

  • The young married couple does something cruel, and then the idiot frat guys next door respond, and back and forth it goes. I laughed, but not uproariously and not often enough.

  • It's Apatow without the Apatow, all ornaments and no tree.

  • As as tensions escalate, Teddy and Peter's partnership proves just as central and perhaps more vulnerable than Mac and Kelly's. Score one for growing up.

    May 9, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Rogen's always a dominating presence, but [Byrne], who showed her comic chops in Bridesmaids, comes close to stealing the movie here, in an uncorked performance full of volatile, liberating mischief.

    May 9, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • One of the great surprises of Neighbors is both the gentle way with which it handles a nimrod party animal like Teddy and how good Efron is at playing him.

    For me, this adult v youth, responsibility v freedom theme worked great and showed Zac Efron really coming into his own. The play between Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen and Zac Efron was amazing. The comedy was crude but well used and the slapstick comedy of all of the airbag gags were great. While this film doesn't touch the "college comedies" of the late 90s-early 00s and of course the 70s and 80s, it holds its own and could remain memorable.

    This has some seriously funny moments. Worth checking out for some good laughs, although it's definitely not for everyone.

    Just awful. I cracked a smile maybe twice.

    I found it moderately amusing. Seeing Rogan play the "grown-up" his characters are always forced to become is a little strange, yet appropriate given his age. The concept of putting him into conflict with a younger generation is solid enough, I just wish more had been done with it.
